c.j.'s selections ten ten ten
|one||After the Red Rain - Barry Lyga, Peter Facinelli, & Robert DeFranco |
Stop. No. Never. The plot of this was so ludicrous and saccharine that I wanted to rip out my teeth through my skull. Just imagine that.
Asylum - Madeline Roux
I wanted to like this book so badly. It had ghosts! It had asylums! It had serial killers! But then the plot was draggy and the characters were flat and I cried inside.
|three||Insanity - Susan Vaught |
Again, how could you possibly go wrong with ghosts and asylums? Like this. With a series of episodic find monster-kill monster-repeats until you reach the end and are like wtf just happened?
|four||Breaking Dawn - Stephanie Meyers |
I shouldn't even have to explain this one. Renesmee. Also there was no plot. To the extent that the movie makers had to MAKE UP a plot for the second movie. Also Renesmee.
Fire and Flood - Victoria Scott
This wasn't awful, but it wasn't that great either. It was sort of derivative and meh and I could figure out the ending by the end, but I didn't even care.
|six||Switched - Amanda Hocking |
I read this because I wanted to know her secret. Apparently it's typos and stalker trolls. Also...hot trolls. Just let that settle.
|seven||Trial by Fire - Joseph Angelini |
I kinda lost it around the time that Lily and Rowan fell in love out of nowhere and then Rowan and Tristan rubbed Lily's naked body in herbal paste and wrapped her in mummy cloths.
|eight||Eleanor and Park - Rainbow Rowell |
I think of this book and I feel like that weird outsider kid who picks their nose at the lame kids' table. Why didn't I love it!? Why didn't I think it was adorable and cute!? Why did I find it boring!?
|nine||Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater |
I tried so hard to love this. Maggie seems like a really cool lady. But the girl fell in love with a wolf. Am I the only one who finds that kind of creeptastic!? Also nothing happened for like 100 pages.
|ten||Crimson Bound - Rosamunde Hodge |
I just don't get it. Cruel Beauty = gorgeous, slow burning romance with unique world and whimsical plot. Crimson Bound = random generic heroine and instalove and I don't even remember what happened.
